A joint hearing of the Raleigh City Council and the Planning Commission will be at held on October 16 at 6:30 pm at city hall to review changes to food truck regulations. Proposed changes would amend regulations on food trucks, including removing restrictions on locations within the Downtown Overlay District.
Proposed text changes by the Law and Public Safety (LPS) committee, would increase the number of trucks allowed on a lot and allow food trucks within the entirety of the Downtown Overlay District. The proposed changes follow a six-month review of existing food truck regulations. During that time, no complaints or enforcement issues were received.
[Editorial] To be honest, I’m not surprised. It seems that citizens in Raleigh’s Creative District love food trucks. Our most popular posts are about food truck rallies and events where food trucks are key participants. [/Editorial]
If the council approves the text changes, the new regulations would allow:
- a maximum of two food trucks on lots of one-half acre or less
- three food trucks on lots between one-half acre and one acre, and
- a maximum of four food trucks on lots greater than one acre but less than two acres
